Last night, on Twitter, from Speaker Pro Tem Denny Hoskins (r):

When Gov Nixon’s agencies had the chance to input on #SB509 before it was passed, none provided fiscal note like Gov is reporting now #moleg 8:14 PM – 22 Apr 2014

And an observation from a Democrat:
Roy Temple @roytemple
Hard lesson for the #MOLeg GOP to ponder: There are some things talking points can’t fix. #SB509 6:14 AM – 23 Apr 2014
Heh. We know what you’re thinking.
